The work looks at female sexuality, women have experienced not having power in their own sexual desires, they are expected to have no desire at all except to fulfil male desire. Even as girls we must be careful in our image to prevent men from seeing us as sexual beings, but just being female makes us an object of desire and a subject to be exploited by the male gaze. Women in art were always considered the model and never the artist, Alessandro focuses the work on the female nude as both art form and pornographic form. She then takes control of this image, she is both model and artist, she holds power over the visualisation of her own desire.
